Upcoming Govt Club Meetings/PracticesTeams

We only have 5 meetings between now and our November scrimmages!
During our next meeting (September 28) we hope to go over directs and themes for each side. (Lawyers should still be working on their crosses during this time.)
Our current October schedule is to fine tune Crosses the first week in October, focus on objections during the second week, and openings and closings during the third. (That gives us one week between those and the scrimmages.)

The Montgomery Defense team is planning to practice at CLC at 1:00 on Mondays. We still need to set a time for the Montgomery Prosecution team.

The parts we currently have assigned are:

Montgomery Defense team:
Heidi - Defendant
Cara - Parent
Eli - Gunsmith
Ben - Cross Taylor ("friend")
Kayleigh - Cross Police Officer
Tori - Cross ATF Agent

Montgomery Prosecution team:
Maggie - Taylor
Gaelin - Police Officer
Kemper or Aaron - ATF Agent
Aaron or Kemper - Cross Gunsmith
Katie cross?
Jacob - cross?

Scrimmage Defense team:
Mitch - Defendant
Vincent - Parent
Mary - Gunsmith
Lissa - cross Taylor
Brad - cross Police Officer
Destiny - cross ATF Agent

Scrimmage Prosecution team:
Chloe - Taylor
Brandon - Police Officer
Kirsta - ATF Agent
Sonia - cross Defendant
Sam - cross Parent
Micha - cross Gunsmith

Mock Trial teams - latest

Thank you all (well, mostly all!) for being nice to my substitute yesterday while I was at the hospital with my daughter. She's on the road to recovery.

We're trying to get closer on our determination of teams. We got a list yesterday of people who wanted to go to Montgomery - but I forgot to tell them to ask about whether students wanted to be lawyers or witnesses...So, if you can post here which you want or if you don't want a preference, that would be great.

Mock Trial teams

We will need to get an exact count of people wanting to be on Mock Trial teams this year as soon as possible. (Last year the YMCA filled all their spots within a week or two of opening registration.) Especially those of you who have been on teams, if you can know by the Open House on Wednesday, that would be great!

Power is back at CLC

I hope everyone is doing well after the storm. We are still without power at our home, but the power and internet is back up at CLC. So we will plan to have Govt Club and Wednesday classes this week. If you can make it fine, but if you are still dealing with after storm issues, and getting here is tough, please don't stress about it. We will plan to hold the presidential elections tomorrow as planned, but remember you can email me your votes if you can't attend.

Again, I hope everyone is safe and relatively unscathed by the storm. Our prayers go out to the families that suffered great loss.

Upcoming Election

We will be voting for President next Wednesday (May 4). Victoria, Ben, and Jacob are running for President. (We will be electing the other officers the following week.) A vote was taken today to allow absentee voting. If you are an active member of the Govt Club and cannot be present on May 4 or May 11, you may vote in advance for the officers. In order to do so, email me with your vote(s) before Government Club starts that week.

If you are voting for President, please send me your first choice and your second choice. (Your first choice will be your vote in the election. Your second choice will only be used if there is a run-off election and your first choice happens not to be in the run-off.)
